Fullers Earth has been around for quite some time and recent developments from the oil industries have helped to resurrect this useful activated attapulgite clay.
Fullers Earth was awarded its name several hundred years ago when wool textile workers or “Fullers” created a time-saving concoction to remove the dense oils from sheep’s wool. This brew included water, urine, soapwort and an abundant “clay” that was in hearty supply. Because of its ability to literally soak up oil and remove dense properties from any given material, Fullers Earth was found to be a highly profitable and useful product for modern manufacturers, espeically in oil field.
Since then its most prominent use has been for post production cat litter, or pet litter! De-coloring oil.
Xinyuan Fuller’s Earth is a naturally occurring attapulgite clay composed mainly of alumina, silica, iron oxides, lime, magnesia, and water, in extremely variable proportions.
Xinyuan Fullers Earth is proud to be one of only a few industrial grade Fuller’s Earth manufacturers in this field.
